Wir haben eine kompetente, wortgewaltige, urteilssichere Kollegin verloren, die sich mit viel Courage engagiert und unermüdlich für unseren Berufsstand eingesetzt hat. Anfängern hat sie mit fundierten, praktischen Ratschlägen Mut gemacht. Unser Glossar hat sie mit ihren kreativen Vorschlägen unendlich bereichert. Und ihre sprachlich geschliffenen Beiträge waren immer lesenswert. Nicoles letzter Forumsbeitrag hier auf Proz.com endete mit den Worten:
„In all those 14 years since I founded our company, nobody has ever dared to mess with us.”

Ich bin sehr traurig. Nicole, du wirst uns so fehlen.

RIP, Nicole. Oct 2, 2014

Herrje, was für eine traurige Nachricht.
Ihrer Familie und ihren engsten Freunden wünsche ich viel Kraft für die kommende Zeit.
Ich werde sie immer in guter Erinnerung behalten. Ich habe sie vor vielen Jahren bei einem Powwow in Berlin persönlich kennen gelernt.
Ein letzter Gruß

Birgit

A brave woman Oct 2, 2014

I am very sad to hear of Nicole's passing. I had a chance to work with her on a project just a few months ago and know that she was battling her illness with incredible strength and she must have continued to work as long as she could. As many other colleagues here, I knew Nicole for many years through our discussions in and her valuable contributions to the forums and KudoZ. I shall miss her very much and my prayers are with her family and friends.

I find solace in my faith
that one day
we all will be forever

Bernhard

Sincere condolences Oct 3, 2014

We didn't always see eye to eye, and over the years we enjoyed many a respectful battle. Nicole was passionate. Her intentions were pure.
Very sad news. My sincere condolences to everyone close.

Shocked Oct 3, 2014

Even in this country far away, I am sad to read this.

I used to follow her posts and admired the way she wrote about things

WHAT??? Oct 3, 2014

Oh my God. This is very sad news indeed! I valued Nicole as an extremely competent and intelligent person with very clear views about our profession. Her presence in these fora will be missed by all!

Rest in peace Nicole. A big hug from Spain, wherever you are!!

Nicole's gone?? Oct 3, 2014

I can't believe this post about Nicole.

I enjoyed reading her posts, sometimes filled with sarcasm and cynicism. From Bernhard's post here, I found out she was ill. That's why I haven't seen her posts lately.

I will miss her very much, since she was a wonderful and a good lady, having pride in her work. A real translator hard to find these days.

R.I.P., Nicole and my condolences to her family.
